It has been called "The Titan". It is known as Viking's flagship and most prestigious model. Some owners have even become famous in their adventures on it with tens of thousands of people following them online. (See the 92 Viking called "The Fa La Me".)
But exactly how much does a new yacht actually cost? "The Viking 92 is going to cost $10 million and up when it's all said and done," says Rich Lucas, SI Yachts Viking Brand Manager. "Viking builds a 92 Convertible, a 92 Enclosed Bridge, and a 92 Skybridge which are all just options. Once the customer starts selecting what they want and customizing the boat, the price can change. We assist clients who want to build their own vessel all the time and help them make the best choice on options for their specific needs."
Viking 92 owners don't just hop on the boat for a day and cruise around. These owners are among the most passionate anglers and cruising enthusiasts in the world who need a yacht that can match their demands.

There is a lot that comes standard on the Viking 92 including the twin Caterpillar C-32A 1925MHP engines. Other features on the 92 that comes standard include:
- Hydraulic bow thrusters with controls that includes a joystick on the enclosed bridge models
- Delta T engine room ventilation system
- Eskimo ice machine
- 2 40kW Onan E-QD diesel generators
- The VIPER Steering System w/ electronic interface (Viking's Independent Programmable Electro-Hydraulic Rudder)
- Electronic trolling valve controls with auto-troll
- Top end appliances throughout the boat
- Home theater center with a 65" flat screen TV on a mechanical raise
- And of course, a 6-stateroom layout
With a base price of under $9 million, there are a variety of options that each Viking 92 owner must decide on when building the boat that will increase the cost. Buying a 92 Viking is like purchasing a piece of art with historic value. This is the best of the best when it comes to luxury sportfishing yachts and no expense is generally spared when creating a vessel that matches your vision. Viking Yachts hold their re-sale value extremely well and perform even better.
After deciding on a Viking 92, the next big decision is to figure out whether an open bridge/convertible model is desired or would an enclosed bridge be preferable. If an enclosed bridge is chosen, a skybridge version can also be added. The additional costs of adding a bridge can be upwards of $300,000 or more depending on optional helm A/c and other decisions.

For owners wanting a little more power on their 92, Viking offers an optional upgrade to twin MTU Series 2000 V16 M96L 2,635MHP engines which costs an additional $795,000. All that extra power doesn't come cheap, but it can certainly make a difference on the tournament circuit. Adding 600 more gallons in fuel capacity is possible, but also is an additional $7,000. The recommended Seakeeper SK 35 is also optional and changes in price depending on Seakeeper's latest model and technology.
Other upgrade options that are offered by Viking Yachts that could increase the price of your 92:
- Satin interior finish throughout the yacht (the standard finish is a high-gloss walnut)
- Air conditioning at the cockpit mezzanine
- A swim platform and ladder if desired
- Custom hull colors
- Davit with hydraulic lift and rotation for telescoping
- Appliances and options for the crew quarters like refrigerator, microwave, washer/dryer combo and more
